Fridail: Colour Me Crazy- Green!

Hey everyone!
Happy Friday! (It's the weekend- yay!)

First of all, I would like to apologise, because I don't have any time to do the final prompt in the Life in Lacquer July Challenge! :( But thank you for following that journey with me, and thanks again to Jade from Life in Lacquer for creating it- I had a lot of fun! :D

Also, before we dive into today's post properly, there will be no posts next week. I'm off to do a 5 day leadership program, so won't have any time (or a laptop). So go and take a well-deserved week off from reading my ramblings while I go and learn how to be a leader.

On with the post then! Today I'm showcasing my green mani for the British Nail Blogger's Colour Me Crazy challenge!

Deciding what to do for this one was a bit hard because I just love green so much! But I recently bought a green-blue crackle polish by Nails Inc, so simple had to use it. I also remembered about the bottle of glitter I have from Nails Inc's "Bling it On: Emerald" set- so I grabbed that to use too!

Polishes used are: Barry M's Aquarium "Arabian" (thumb and pinkie base colour)

Barry M's Silk "Meadow" (index and ring fingers base colour)

Nails Inc "Clapham Crackle Topcoat"

...I think I have a new favourite crackle polish! 

Anyway, looking at this mani on my nails right now, I'm loving how the duo-colours in "Arabian" are poking their way through the crackle, and also how the glitter is shimmering today! The colours are just perfect too, darn you Barry M & Nails Inc for making such wonderful polishes!

This is also my last mani before I cut my nails in preparation for my program... *sniff sniff* Goodbye long nails! :( 

So that's all from me! I shall see you on Monday the 11th of August, which just happens to be 3 days before A Level Results day (yet another thing to cry about).
Have a lovely week without me!

Avril "Mille et une nuits" #32*

*This post contains an item sent to me in exchange for an honest review. Here it is a nail polish by Avril, called "Mille et une nuits" - No32.

Hello folks!

How are you all doing? How am I doing? Where am I? Who am I? So many questions...

To answer a few... I hope you are doing fine.
Yes, I am fine thank you.
I am in England, once again. For a long while this time.
I am Rachel, as always. And I have been missing from the blogging world for a couple of months.

The past 2 weeks I have spent job-searching (with success, yay!), catching up on Suits, and binge-watching Scandal. I want you all to go and do some homework and watch Scandal so I have somebody to talk to about it. Seriously.

Anyway, a few months ago I was lucky enough to be contacted by Avril - a french beauty brand which pride themselves on not testing on animals, and ensuring any of the ingredients used are also not tested on our furry friends. I highly respect this, and think that all companies should follow their …

I'm writing this whilst listening to the General Election results. I'm not going to get into politics here though, this is a safe politics-free zone!

I've been semi-missing the past few weeks, I know. Many apologies. However if you follow me on Instagram you'll have seen a couple of posts! And just in case you don't, here they are for you:

First of all actually, I had a little haul from BornPrettyStore, and bought the following stoofs:

And then did ma nails. (That's what I do here, generally after all).

That's all the nail stuff really. I did however, get some awesome new glasses with many thanks to Gl…

Swatch Watch: Barry M Gelly 'Papaya'

Greetings folks,

Today's featured polish is one of my top picks for Summer pretty much every year. It's a Barry M Gelly polish, which I summarised all of the colours for (at the time) a few years back. You can check that post out here if you want to see the awesome variation of colours!

Papaya, however, is I think the first of the Gelly polishes I picked out. It's a pinky-orange/peach colour (wow, great describing skills, I know), that seems perfect for cocktails and beach-style weather. That weather is also known as Summer in most countries (and occasionally the UK). Of course, it has the beautiful gel-like shiny finish with it, which can be enhanced with a shiny topcoat, or even a gel-style topcoat if you want to go all out!

Most images in this post were taken with flash to try and capture the true colour of the polish. In some lights it looks more orange than peach, but I feel that all the images here show the true colour it appears in a few different light settings.
